Check out the hilarious things they came up with, and share your own zinger in the comments section!

“Kids just aren’t my thing.”

“Your son was right – I do make a much better lasagna!”

“I hate the earrings you gave me for Christmas.”

“How’s menopause treating you?”

“Should I pick up a bottle of Nice ‘n Easy? Your grays are showing.”

“No, you can’t stay at our place this weekend.”

“If you call the house again, I’m changing my phone number.”

“This story sounds familiar…Oh yeah, it’s because you’ve told it to me 10 times already!”

“Your son warned me about your nagging, but I didn’t expect it to be this bad.”

“I’m pregnant — just kidding!”

“We can’t make it for Thanksgiving. We’ve decided to go someplace fun this year.”

“Thanks to me, your son finally knows how to do laundry the right way.”

“Know of any good babysitters?”
